I'm not too "behind the times" to use Skype, but I find it difficult to use with people I don't personally know that well. There seem to be awkward pauses and neither seems to know when to 'hang up'.

I remember the first time Ming and I Skyped, it was all rather awkward and neither of us really knew what to say. After we hung up, we 'chatted' on MSN for ages - no problem in knowing what to say then!

Nigel, you are pretty correct and thats why I said, that until people dont meet each other ,the other person doesnt feel comfortable about the idea.
Well for me ,it is no more a problem, it is only awkward if the other person is not willing enough to talk. We should learn to talk about things the, other person is related to.

It was a nuisance. An adventure was one thing - but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing. That wouldn't do at all. (The Valley of Adventure)
